I like Tucker Carlson. I sometimes like Sean Hannity. But I’ll never watch them again except in excerpts posted to Rumble. Why? Because they’ll never leave Fox News (unless a future alleged Trump TV offers them enough money) and therefore their messages are fueled by a company that despises my very existence in this world.
Unfortunately, I know I’m in the minority among freedom-loving Americans. You might say, “screw Fox News, I’ll never watch them again,” but you probably will. It’ll start by “just” watching the evening hosts who are generally conservative. You’ll get tired of One America News and Newsmax and whoever else you might be watching right now. You’ll miss the better-resourced productions and broader reach that Fox News has over their persnickety right-leaning competitors.
You’ll probably watch them again, not because you forgive them but because you’re like most Americans. We’re intellectually lazy. Deny it all you want but most of us want to be told what to think. We don’t want to read an affidavit about voter fraud. We’d rather hear it from Tucker who had his staff read through it, though they probably had an intern do the full-read before actually reading a bullet-point breakdown so they could write the copy for Tucker to read so we can digest the morsels. And that’s for a 1-3 page affidavit. Imagine actually having to read a proposed bill. Nobody does that, not even me.
If you’re like me at all, you will never watch Fox News again. Ever. They hate me. If you voted for President Trump, they hate you. But they need you. That’s why they changed up their lineup to deemphasize the news side and put more prime time attention on conservative commentators. Sorry, but that’s not good enough. They actively and enthusiastically participated in the coup that is currently handing the nation over to the whims of the Chinese Communist Party. They could resurrect Ronald Reagan, Barry Goldwater, and Calvin Coolidge, give them each an hour in prime time, and I still wouldn’t turn the channel in their direction.
Admittedly, I’d really hope someone would put those shows on Rumble. But I won’t contribute my viewership to the most treacherous media company to ever exist.
One might say, “They’re better than CNN or MSNBC.” No, they’re not. With CNN and MSNBC, you get the enemy’s narrative in a form that’s transparent. They don’t pretend to like us only to attack us later. They attack is directly to our faces. Fox News strategically attacks us and our ideology while our backs are turned so the knife they insert can have maximum effect.
No, I’m not telling you to watch CNN or MSNBC. I don’t. But if I had to watch any of the news channels, it wouldn’t be Fox News. They need to be punished for their betrayal, and that punishment can’t be a few weeks of bad ratings. They must be diminished to the point of irrelevance in conservative spheres. Anything less than exile away from those who share our worldview is incomplete.
If you don’t like One America News or Newsmax, take the time to set up your subscriptions on Rumble, BitChute, and Brighteon. If you MUST use YouTube, so be it. They’re much less impacted by one less visitor than Fox News is when they lose household viewers. But whatever you do, don’t get sucked back into the clutches of Fox News. They’re complicit in everything bad that’s coming to America in the near and distant future.
At no point can Fox News be allowed to return to its pre-betrayal glory. They did everything within their power to make sure Joe Biden would be president. They made that choice. No shakeup in their lineup can change the fact that they did great harm to this nation.
